Ekaphan said he was urinating on the side of the factory near to the bog when he saw the deer. He said he feared that others might find the deer and kill it for food or sale. He assumed it was a pet belonging to a neighbor that had gotten trapped in the mud, which was 50 meters deep and 50 rai wide.
Banglamung officials determined the deer belonged to the Pattaya Sheep Farm, a new tourist attraction.
Safe and sound after villagers helped this young doe escape from a muddy field where it had been stuck.
